Robert Pattinson On ‘Twilight’ Fans: What Do These People Do All Day?

Gabrielle Chung / August 21, 2013

Fans may still be in mourning over the end of the Stephenie Meyers franchise, but Robert Pattinson isn’t one of them.

“The real odd thing about this Twilight target group is that they aren’t really teenagers,” Pattinson said in a recent interview with Germany’s Interview magazine [via inTouch]. “Most of them are older.”

Twilight has its own parallel world, its own fan culture that has been forming on the net since day one,” Pattinson continued. “And in an intense way that has never existed before. Sometimes I ask myself what these masses of people do the whole day. They sit in front of their computers and comment on anything having even remotely to do with Twilight.”

Twihards aside, Pattinson also has a vehement disdain for those who refer to him as R-Patz (which is just about everyone who had ever talked about Twilight).

“I’d like to strangle the guy who came up with it!” Pattinson said of his moniker, adding that it was probably “some fat celebrity blogger.”

So, rules of getting on R-Patz Pattinson’s good side: don’t talk about Twilight and don’t call him R-Patz. Done.
